Rain and you (Sonnet No. 3)


(Sonnet No. 3)

From a Trilogy of English Sonnets



The sun is fully shining, fulgent now;

The warmth of the day is felt in the air.

The outdoor world will beckon me, and how!

Rainbow treasure lucent from everywhere.


Will soon I see you to brighten my light

Or are you to remain hidden away?

Should I surmise to think you maybe, might,

Accompany me out, about, this day?


Then all of a sudden now here you are

Smiling kindly, your exiting rose charm;

Glowing brighter than the brightest night star,

Come walk with me, come and take my right arm.


Walk along with me and display your grace:

Keep your body near ere I kiss your face.

    A fine write Alan. Can I join you two on that walk, or would I just get in the way?!

    • Alan .S. Jeeves

      Of course you may come Steve. Be sure to bring along a bottle of intoxicating Yorkshire water though.

      Ex animo, Alan

      • orchidee

        Aww, they don't want me to bring water. They say I will add it to their tipple. Then they will shoot me for doing so! lol..

      • Goldfinch60

        May that walk go on forever in this wondrous sonnet.

        • Alan .S. Jeeves

          Thanks Andy. Hope you enjoyed the trio a little. That's my writing done for 2019 now. I'll just finish off tomorrow with something seasonal for the Xmas break.

          Ex animo, Alan

        • Nicholas Browning

          A nice read. The style is quite good.

          • Alan .S. Jeeves

            Thanks for taking time to read Nick. I appreciate it.

            Kind regards, Alan

          • Fay Slimm

            The romantic sonnets "Rain and You" work perfectly as a trilogy Alan - I like the tenderness in your presentations and this final one goes into my faves..........

            • Alan .S. Jeeves

              Thank you very much Fay. It can be difficult to say everything in 14 lines so it is legitimate to write a trilogy (or more). Glad you think that they are OK.

              Ex animo, Alan

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              THANK YOU ALAN ~ For the final SONNET in the TRILOGY ! Again it is elegant In its Regularity (balanced 4 4 4 2) - Rhythm - Rhyme & Reason ! What a difference a little Sunshine makes ! No longer huddled against the RAIN ~ al fresco becons ! It lifts our Spirits - individualy - and blesses our UNION ! The final doublet is very Angela & I ~ love it !

              Walk along with me - and display your grace
              Keep you body near - ere I kiss your face ~ AMEN !

              Thanks for an atmospheric TRILOGY
              Love BRIAN & ANGELA ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š

              • Alan .S. Jeeves

                Hello to you both. I am so pleased that you enjoyed this trio. I hope that others reading it may see themselves within. Then it makes it a pleasure to share.

                Ex animo, Alan
